Hopefully many of you will be taking a trip back in time and to the future with celebratory screenings of Back to the Future. Whether it’s just Back to the Future Part II or the whole damn trilogy, Back to the Future Day is the perfect time to relive Robert Zemeckis’ classic sci-fi adventure. And now that we’re officially in the future, why not dress in style?
No, we’re not saying you need to wear your pockets inside out, double up on neckties, or get bionic implants (though the latter could be awesome). Instead, why not have your feet do some time traveling with Rock ‘Em Apparel‘s new Back to the Future socks collection? The way I see it, if you’re gonna wear socks, you might as well have some fun with them. Read More »

Much of the nostalgia fueling Back to the Future Day comes from people (like yours truly) who are actually old enough to remember when 1989 was the present, and 2015 was an impossibly distant future. But a whole generation of moviegoers has come up since that film was released.
So how do teens today — who, keep in mind, weren’t even born when Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale were predicting hoverboards and self-tying laces for 2015 — feel about the movie? Watch teens react to Back to the Future Part II after the jump. Read More »
The holy grail for most movie geeks is J. W. Rinzler’s The Making of Star Wars and Indiana Jones books, which offer in-depth looks at the making of some of the greatest films of all time. But it’s rare for films to get this kind of treatment, which is why it’s so great to see that Michael Klastorin‘s Back to the Future: The Ultimate Visual History does just that.
If you are a Back to the Future fan, this book will blow you away. I’m a hardcore obsessive who thought I knew and saw everything having to do with the film, but almost every other page of this book had a quote or an image that I had never seen before. To help promote the book’s release this week, I thought I’d take a look at the 11 coolest things I found in this book. Hit the jump to go 88mph and see some never-before-seen photos from behind the scenes of Back to the Future. And by the way, you can order the book now on Amazon.

Obviously we’re huge fans of Back to the Future here at /Film, and we can’t wait for all the fun that awaits us on Back to the Future Day next week. However, the bandwagon is getting a little full with all the promotions being tied into the time traveling film franchise at this point.
While we’re fine with all the merchandise being sold to commemorate the films, such as the Pepsi Perfect bottles and Mondo vinyl soundtrack releases, some of the tie-ins from unrelated companies is a little overboard. Just recently a Toyota ad with Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox surfaced, which is fine since Toyota is actual a prominent brand in the movie, but now there’s a Mercedes Back to the Future set of advertisements as well. Read More »

If you don’t know that Back to the Future Day is coming up next week, then you are either deaf and blind or you don’t read /Film more than twice a month. The celebration of the most iconic time travel film franchise is nearly upon us, and there are plenty of big events happening and cool little promotions like Pepsi Perfect on October 21st, 2015.
This is all because that date is when Doc (Christopher Lloyd) and Marty (Michael J. Fox) travel to 2015 in Back to the Future Part II. However, as we know, the 2015 of the movie isn’t the same as the year we’re living in now (there’s even a short that will explain why that’s the case). But what if Doc and Marty ended up going Back to the Future in real 2015 instead? Read More »

There are many potential roadblocks standing in the way of a Back to the Future 4, but the participation of the original Emmett “Doc” Brown is not one of them. The great Christopher Lloyd doesn’t have the power to actually get a sequel off the ground, but according to a new interview, he certainly wouldn’t say no if the project crossed his desk. So there you have it. An original cast member has said “back,” “to,” “the,” “future,” and “four” in public, in the right order. Cue the “Will a Back to the Future sequel happen?” chatter.
Read what Lloyd has to say about a potential Back to the Future 4 after the jump.

Hey there! We haven’t been properly introduced. I’m Ethan Anderton. Back in May, I joined the /Film crew as the Weekend Editor, and while some of you have gotten to know me and my film tastes over the past few months, I never got a chance to truly arrive here at the site like our new writers Jack Giroux and Jacob Hall.
Therefore, I figured I’d follow suit by delivering my own favorite films of all time. These are the movies that have stuck with me over the years, some more recently than others, and have defined and changed my life in a variety of ways. Read More »
